Installing VS after evaluation period ends

Hi,  I've just installed Parallel Studio XE Professional and then VS 2015 Community  with the C++ option on a Windows 10 system.  Earlier I evaluated both sets of software before purchasing.  I uninstalled both versions before I installed the purchased version.  When I launch VS 2015, I get a message that says I've exceeded the evaluation period.  I thought that VS 2015 was a free download compatible with XE.  If so, how can I turn off the time-limit.

Hello,

Are you getting the message from VS 2015?  We don't support problems specific to Visual Studio, but I believe if you have the community edition you can only use it for a certain amount of time before you have to sign in with a Microsoft account, which is free to create.

Thanks,

Jennifer

Thanks, that was helpful.   The trick was that I had to sign out first and then sign back into the Microsoft account and that seemed to take care of it.
